October 2019 in the Wedgwood Neighborhood of Seattle

The Wedgwood neighborhood in northeast Seattle is rich with colorful trees in the autumn season, including the drive along 35th Ave NE with its street trees.  Oranges and yellows abound, set off by pumpkin decorations.

Two traditional activities in October in Wedgwood are the pumpkin patch and the trick-or-treat in the business district on Halloween.

October 2019 pumpkin patch at the Hunter Tree Farm, 7744 35th Ave NE.

This year’s pumpkin patch is a fundraiser for the local scout troop, conducted on the property of the Hunter Tree Farm, 7744 35th Ave NE and is open on weekends.

This unique gathering space at Hunter’s is used for spring-summer fruit stands, neighborhood meetings, and of course the annual Christmas tree sales by the Hunter family.  The poles and birdhouse decorations were added as part of a grant-funded project in the year 2011, to create the Gathering Place.   The project helped make the site accessible and usable year-round.

Each year the Wedgwood business district says “thank you” to the community by organizing for trick-or-treat from 4 to 6 PM on Halloween, October 31st.

Families are invited to walk the Wedgwood business district along 35th Ave NE and stop in wherever the orange poster is displayed.

At trick-or-treat Wedgwood businesses give away goodies to the children and they may also give coupons and info flyers for their products and services.  It’s a great opportunity to meet local business owners and thank them for their commitment to Wedgwood.
